Description

An amazing example of sea side crags opening up for people interested in all things rock. Top roping, lead climbing, trad, high lining and abseiling, the Eastern Suburbs has it all. During summer you and your friends will more than likely have mother nature put a show on for you with her wildlife. There's always a good chance of seeing whales, dolphins and other creatures. Clovelly is a prime location for this as well as Diamond Bay and Bondi. If you're interested in a little adrenalin rush then perhaps Rosa Gully is the place for you with several high line anchors in situ for those who dare!

Most crags have easy parking with only a short distance to walk, scramble or abseil into the crag.

Access issues inherited from New South Wales and ACT

If you have benefited from climbing infrastructure in NSW, please consider making a donation towards maintenance costs. The Sydney Rockclimbing Club Rebolting Fund finances the replacement of old bolts on existing climbs and the maintenance of other hardware such as fixed ropes and anchors. The SRC purchases hardware, such as bolts and glue, and distributes them to volunteer rebolters across the state of New South Wales.
